The PM claimed to be Eurosceptic to climb the greasy pole says Peter Oborne

Peter Oborne says David Cameron is in no position to lecture anyone on their Euroscepticism,  and at least Michael Gove and Boris Johnson are risking their careers to put their money where their mouths are!  They are actually doing something.

The stench of hypocrisy is insufferable. That is why, for all their faults, Michael Gove and Boris Johnson are so admirable,' writes Oborne

Oborne explains:  When David Cameron  stood for the nomination in his safe seat at Witney 15 years ago, he courted, and was helped by, the Eurosceptics.

Whenever asked about Europe, he highlighted his doubts and alarm about the direction it was taking. Were those doubts genuine? Or was Mr Cameron simply swinging in the political breeze in order to advance his career?

One thing is certain. The Prime Minister was displaying grotesque hypocrisy when he brutally laid into Boris Johnson in Parliament on Monday, suggesting it was ambition rather than principle that motivated him. Cameron’s own lack of principle on the subject should not be forgotten.

The Prime Minister promised ‘fundamental reform’ to Britain’s relationship with Europe.

Then, after four months of fake negotiation, he delivered nothing more than a handful of cosmetic changes.

Peter Oborne then proceeds to reveal the hypocrisy of Cameron’s ministers.  It’s not a pretty story.  Read the seamy details of the ministers who,like the PM put personal advancement before voters, their party and their country.

    I am voting out, not because I want Britain to go alone, but because I am thinking globally, I want us to be an outwardly looking nation once again, trading with the whole world, working for the entire planet not just one small insular selfish corner of it. I want to re-engage with the Commonwealth, we turned our back on them in 1975 and it was shameful that we did.
    Yes the EU has done some good things, but it is running out of control, it has got too big, is un-reformed and is un-democratic.
    It has an idealistic vision that cannot be achieved with Directives Alone.. It needs to change but it will never change unless someone, somewhere stands up and says NO!

  2. PM faking it, just says what suits.
